Going to a Beyoncé concert is one thing to be excited about. Getting a Beyoncé compliment? That’s another.
Ribicca Mamuye and her friend Hamdi Mohamed went to Beyoncé’s concert at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field on May 18 when the singer noticed them dancing and walked over.
“I was singing and doing the dance moves to ‘Daddy Lessons,’ and that’s when she swung her head and sang and pointed right at me,” Mohamed told BuzzFeed. But before walking away, Beyoncé gave Mamuye’s Afro a thumbs up.
Mamuye’s boyfriend captured the incredible moment on camera:
Mohamed also posted the video and said, “Me being me, I told @iamabyssinia to let her Afro down so we could wear our hair with pride, with the intention of Queen Beyoncé noticing us… and she freaking did. Pointed and sang right at me, then gave Ribs the approval for her Afro! I still can’t stop watching this video.”
“It’s one thing to be that close to Beyoncé, and for her to take two seconds [to] compliment you… It’s so surreal,” Mamuye told BuzzFeed.
“She acknowledged I was in formation — that’s all that mattered.”
